Toronto considers City Chickens


Toronto residents are keeping their chickens below the radar, according to an article in the Toronto Star, Ontario. http://www.thestar.com/News/GTA/article/421205. Increasingly urbanites concerned about about food miles and safety are pushing their local governments to be more flexible about backyard livestock.

Alice, the pseudonymous chicken owner featured in the article, keeps her chickens in an Eglu, shown above. Chickens and their advocates are being heard!
